Love our Ennis Arts Festival


Ennis Arts Festival

We had 55 artists exhibiting their creativity at this wonderful Ennis Arts Festival today.

Come and see a few of the booths, artists, and special visitors with me.

One of our artists, Ivette Kjelsrud, designs creative fine, wearable art.

The center of this bison by Ivette is melted wax, a technique called encaustic.

It was fun setting up tents on a beautiful Saturday morning…

One of my favorites: Scott Wheeler Photography Scottwheelergallery.com

This photo of Yellowstone’s Artist’s Point is a sample of Kim Tolotti’s wonderful photography. Kim died this year  –  a great loss to us, to art, and the world.

Kim’s Photography was/is gorgeous. We are establishing a scholarship in her honor to be awarded to an Ennis High graduating senior who will focus on art as a major

 

My 2 mo. old great-granddaughter was the only bored person in the crowd!

Bob & our great-Grandson, Xander, enjoyed the rock painting area.

We’re a dog friendly park. Isn’t this one a cutie?

The Tune Tanglers kept us entertained from 10: to 5: with their great music!

Aimee Heimberg shared a booth with Ruth Hauri.

I love Sunny Glass Mosaics by Sunny Jaye.

Tiki Contemporary & Western Art by Kathleen Van Diessche is amazing!

When time to take a break, the porta potties are right handy! Couldn’t help myself… just had to share this corner of the festival with you.

These boys were ready for a break, too.

Don’t miss Wildfire Photography – Images by Gary Slane – Spectacular!
John's Rustic Originals John’s Rustic Originals made with old kitchen silverware and utinsels were so clever! Pottery booth

There were several wonderful pottery booths with a myriad of pottery to choose from.

Barbed wire art The barbed wire artist was new to us this year. His creations were fascinating.

Members' - Carle+ One booth was for Ennis Arts Association members who wanted to display one to three items, but didn’t want to fill a booth space of their own. The three in the background are the work of Carle McCambridge.

Spoon Cross Carla Cavaiani used old spoons to create beautiful art pieces.

I love this bluebird photography by Scott Wheeler (see my reflection in the glass taking this photo with my cell phone?)…Makes an interesting study, doesn’t it? Blue bird photo

Come fly on over here next year – second Saturday in August – for another phenomenal festival.

South-east of us, the Madison River flows out of Hebgen Lake. The Madison’s origin is the Gibbon and the Firehole Rivers in Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park is just an hour’s drive from us.

You can see why our Madison Valley is considered part of “Big Sky Country” – the views are magnificent. The sky is uninterrupted.

Thank you, Scott Wheeler, for your fantastic photography.
If you want a copy of his work, my friends,
be sure to come to our Ennis Arts Festival this August 10th.
Look me up! I’ll be there.

Bob & I don’t see the river from our house, but we look out at Jack Creek Canyon in that magnificent Madison Range. The western sunset reflecting red in the eastern mountains often is part of our night’s “light show.”

These next two photos are mine…
taken a couple weeks ago
when we still had some snow on the ground.

Here is the western view.
Our house is the one tucked in
all those evergreen trees out there…

… and here is the eastern reflection:

Yes, we are blessed.

 

You have a blessed day, my friends.

Happy Friday!
